Recipe's preparation

    A tangy and colourful cherry sauce that looks wonderful for Christmas Dinner.
  1. In TMX bowl, blitz the orange and lemon rind for 15 seconds on speed 10. 

    Add port, orange and lemon juices, cherry pulp, jelly, onion, mustard, ginger and Tabasco.

    Bring to the boil.  Say 3 minutes on 100 degrees C on speed 3.  Be careful as this may foam up of the pan.  If it does so, replace measuring cup with simmering basket and drop speed back a notch.

    Add arrowroot and mix together well - 5 seconds on speed 5.

    Cook over low heat - 2 minutes at 80 degrees C on speed 4.  Do not allow to boil.

    Add the reserved orange and lemon rind. 

    Slowly bring the speed up from 1 to 9 to puree the sauce and blend thoroughly.  This should talk about 35 seconds.   

    Serve over duck with cherries and spinach.
